Founded by OUSU in 1982, Target Schools aims to inspire and support able prospective students who might be put off by damaging myths and stereotypes. Target Schools is student-led and responsible both for coordinating undergraduate volunteers who wish to do school visits and for running Oxford's only shadowing scheme.

Being student-led we feel that we can give a unique perspective on access issues whilst also making sure the content of access campaigns remain accessible and relevant. We want it to be easy and worthwhile to get involved: we run training sessions called ‘Target Schools Teas’ where we aim to help you develop your public speaking skills - and there is only the need to attend one during your time at Oxford.

Get Involved

The easiest way to get in touch is by emailing target@ousu.ox.ac.uk.  This will put you in direct contact with the two Co-Chairs who should be able to answer your query (or otherwise put you in contact with someone who can).
